The Atlas Tower Kit has been featured on T&D World’s website where its use case for linemen in harsh, remote environments is highlighted. Tucson Electric Power (TEP) is one of the first companies in the electric utility industry to adopt Atlas products into their normal hoist, winch, and rescue routines, saving time and money while minimizing environmental impact and complying with OSHA fall restraint standards. Atlas Devices worked closely with TEP to ensure our Powered Rope Ascenders would be compatible with their standard equipment and procedures. We look forward to expanding our customers’ reach and enabling such vital work to be done higher, faster, safer.

Atlas Powered Ascenders are being used by utility workers to decrease the time spent at dangerous elevations. The APA-5 helps reduce fatigue, eliminate large amounts of gear, and simplify complex rigging used for high angle rescue situations on dangerous power lines. Check out our recent feature in NPR.
